Daddy Longlegs in habitat?

Post by HermitCrabHelp » Thu Feb 13, 2020 1:21 pm

Is it dangerous for a daddy longlegs to be in the crabitat? I’m not sure how it got in there, but it’s starting to build a bunch of webs...

Update: It has a tiny friend?

No, I’ve had spiders get into my crabitat in the past and stay without issues. If anything the crabs may stress out the spiders.

Great to hear, thanks!

Oof unideal, but as long as there’s no direct danger, it should be ok

They are terrifying but since they can’t bite humans I guess they can’t bite hermit crabs
